Zucchini bread is my absolute favorite when it comes to sweet breads. Zucchini and walnuts combined with sugar and other good stuff - just the best. 🙂
I also love that something this tasty is loaded with veggies!
I love the use of oil in this recipe, however if you would like to reduce the oil, you can replace half of the oil with applesauce.
